This is a favorite of mine. Really simple to prepare, but a lot of great flavor. I always serve it with rice, and a fresh salad.

To me this seemed like a stovetop equivelant of Southwest Easy Oven Ckn (#95837). I like both recipes. For this I ended up using garlic salt on the breasts before putting in the skillet. I drained my black beans out of habit. My favorite salsa is an extra mild picante so I put 1 c. in and then turned the heat up to do something of a reduction to thicken it up. I can't do rice on the stove to save my life so we went with Minute Rice. Was very tasty and simple.
